Loving Learning and Living Together

Growing up together from 2 to 6 years old

To thrive and master pluriingualism from a young age, our program ensures personalized support, establishes solid learning foundations, and immerses children in a multicultural environment. We promote balanced development through art and sports, and stimulate reflection and memory through play and communication.

Children can settle into a multilingual and multicultural daily routine. They learn 3 languages: French, English and Italian. Children are supported to progressively build towards the future educational environment of the primary school, with 50% of teaching delivered in English and 50% in French. 2 hours a week of Italian.

5 areas of competence

Engaging with the language in all its dimensions

reaffirms the leading role of language in preschool as an essential condition of success for all. The stimulation and structuring of spoken language skills and gradual phasing-in of writing skills are seen as priorities in the preschool and involve all areas.

Acting and expressing themselves through physical activity

Physical activities allow children to explore their possibilities, expand and refine their motor abilities and master new balances. They help them to develop their laterality, the oriented image of their own body, and to better position themselves in time and space.

Acting, expressing themselves and understanding through artistic activities

Artistic activities allow children to develop interactions between action, sensations, the imagination, sensitivity and thought.

Structuring their mind

The preschool gradually leads children to discover numbers and their uses, explore shapes and sizes. Teachers present them with problems within their reach to prompt reflection.

Exploring the world

This area helps children to develop an initial understanding of their environment and arouses their curiosity. Based on the knowledge they are already familiar with, the preschool sets children on a path to ordering the world around them, accessing common representations and concepts that are then further developed in primary school.
